Your website should be accessible for a variety of reasons.
- It’s simple to do. It’s simple to re-examine a website and add many elements that will make it more accessible right away. Changing the site’s visual appearance or design isn’t always necessary.
- It is the right thing to do. Making your website accessible to everyone can make a big difference in someone’s everyday life. Making your website inaccessible means that a potential customer or user might not be able to access the information you’re trying to share. Why would you make it impossible for visitors to use your website if you put information on it with the intention of sharing it?
- It won’t appear to be any different. Simple changes are enough to make a site accessible without requiring it to drastically change its appearance or functioning.
- In the United Kingdom, website accessibility is more than a nice to have; it’s a legal requirement for both public and private sector organisations.
